Due to the decree of the Austrian Government Madame Tussauds Vienna remains CLOSED from March 14th until futher notice.
Madame Tussauds Vienna is closely monitoring all information on infections with the Covid19 virus which have also occurred in Austria. We will keep you informed about new developments. Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors and our staff members.
1939 was a tough year for many people. It was shortly before the second world war startet and therefore must never be forgotten. Hence, Madame Tussauds Vienna built a new area especially dedicated to the World War II to educate and remind people of history in a respectful way.
At the beginning of the area is the wax figure Winston Churchill in front of London, followed by Karl Renner, an Austrian politician, in Vienna. A typical red telephone box and feel boxes give interactive opportunities and great photo points.
Next up are Leopold Figl, another Austrian politician, Oskar Schindler and Anne Frank in a remake of her secret hiding place in Amsterdam.
Then you will see film director Quentin Tarantino and actor Brad Pitt in one of his best-known roles - as Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds. They transfer the issue of WWII into today's world and on to the screens.
In the end you can take a picture of you in front of a hand-painted mural on a brick wall. The mural shows two gigantic lilac wings - symbolizing peace.
